AAFS and Benedictine University volunteers make a difference for survivors

AAFS and Benedictine University volunteers make a difference for survivors

Arab American Family Services (AAFS) recently coordinated an event with students from Benedictine University who volunteered at AAFS to assist in creating binders for intake clients for the Sexual Assault Department. Sahar Al-Najjar, Mental Health & Sexual Assault Case Worker and head of the Department, led the project with the Benedictine volunteers.

The students took initiative in creating binders filled with consent forms and beneficial resources for clients during counseling sessions with her clients. The students also produced a pledge card in which each of them consented to making a difference and increasing awareness in solidarity of sexual assault. They were very happy and excited to volunteer with AAFS again.

Sexual assault is a major stigma in our community and many others as well. From organizing the proper consent forms and resources for the counseling binders that AAFS will utilize to counsel survivors; to creating beautiful artwork for our counseling rooms in solidarity of sexual assault survivors – AAFS thanks our Benedictine volunteers for all their generous time and effort.
